Tech Tip 38: How to Change Text Orientation in Excel

Posted on: August 12, 2009

If you’re making a document using Microsoft Excel, you can easily change the direction of the text appearing in the cells, by rotating it to any angle. The default orientation of text is horizontal, but you can choose to display your text either vertically or to a certain angle. This is how it is done:

First select the cell(s) which holds the text you want to rotate. Then right click that cell and click on ‘Format Cells’. This brings up the Format Cells dialog box, which you normally use to specify the kind of data you want to key in – e.g. date formats, or currencies. On this dialog box, click on the ‘Alignment tab’. Here you’ll see that under the orientation section, you’ll be able to change the direction of the text according to the number of degrees you want it to be rotated. Change it to your requirements and click ‘OK’ to close the dialog box.

Formatting text in Office Software is very easy as Microsoft provides a user-friendly environment. You just have to know to manipulate your content and you can have your documents looking good in seconds!

From next week I’ll be dishing out tips on the programming side now. From HTML to CSS to Visual Basic. If you want to know anything from these topics, do let me know and I’ll write about it!
